Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.
was the movie you watched ‘wanted’ because
also the lego movie… also the matrix…
also a lot of movies its sickening
The plot of Shape of His Heart is just this, with the genders flipped.
Meanwhile, in prehistoric Canada…..
No no, you don’t understand, moose really do get that big. Take it from a Canadian. I’ve seen that bullshit in person. Scary as all heck.
And that’s how people can die if they hit a moose. Seriously, one of our fears when driving in the country is having to deal with this scenario of a moose jumping out in front of the car.
moose are actual legit ice age megafauna; theyve been here since the ice age, they are old as fuck. they also are pretty terrifying and ive echoed this before but i went to wiki and “In terms of raw numbers, they attack more people than bears and wolves combined” and “ In the Americas, moose injure more people than any other wild mammal and, worldwide, only hippopotamuses injure more.”
like, fuck off with that
I was dog sitting a dog once who insisted she had to go out in the middle of the night it was an emergency, so I took her out. Suddenly she starts pointing and barking and I look up and can just make out the outline of a HUGE moose. I’ve been accidentally face to face with a black bear and that scared me less than being up close with a moose. I’m 5 foot so imagine staring up at an animal several feet taller than you that is debating charging the dog who’s leash you are holding. I was terrified as I grabbed the dog by her collar to get better control over her and backed up slowly til I was out of line of sight and bolted for the house at a dead run. Did you know most Canadian lake monster stories come from people seeing moose swimming? They are massive animals.
They are massive and they charge. I get so scared when tourists are all “oh yeah, we got out of the car to get a closer look and, ya’ll have some mighty impressive animals around here.”
Yes, yes we do, and they have mighty tired guardian angels because moose can, and do, charge at people.
I’ve always said that moose hunting season is the one time of the year we’re allowed to fight back.
Someone my mom worked with died hitting a moose on the highway. Their eyes don’t reflect light. In the dark they are literally nothing but a big slightly darker shape in the night.
Roughly every year in the town I grew up in, a cow (moose) and her calf will wander through downtown. Maybe once or twice. If she’s aggressive enough, the local Mounties will escort her through to keep idiots away.
Why everyone in my hometown drives massive trucks. Little cars almost seem to attract these buggers, as my Grandparents once found out driving their little Toyota home one night. They took out his legs and he flipped and landed on the roof, crushing both the car and my Grandparents. Miraculously they survived, though were really banged up. From then on my Grandma refuses to take any less than a Ford f-250 on the road.
I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old identical twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.
That generation is here.
oh look my favorite photo set
what the entire and actual existing fuck?
"Why Princess Jellyfish is one of my most favourite shows ever, and would someone please license the manga and bring it over here already."
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
Family Guy - Comedy for Sociopaths.
Normally I don’t repost much, but this one here sums up why I hate Family Guy. Haven’t watched much of that show and never managed to watch it more than 10 minutes. I switched channels or turned it off after a while, because that show is so annoying and painful to watch. Instead to laugh, I just got angry.
Couldn’t put my finger on it why, back then I thought it was the drawing style, boring story-lines and the voices.
So I never bothered to look at it again. But I kept hearing that Meg gets bullied, even worse: by her own family! How much of a sad person do you have to be to come up with stories like that and sell them as comedy? There is nothing funny about bullying and abuse! I just find it sad and depressing.
So sick and sad that stuff like this gets green lit, funded, produced and shown on TV, while other good shows get cancelled or never produced. Shows how messed up media is(by reinforcing such behavior) and how messed up someone has to be to find such things funny.
Even if The Simpsons has gone for way too long now and has lost its original spark, it’s still a thousand times better than Family Guy ever will be.
This is the saddest thing I’ve ever seen on tv.
